American Forests has joined Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton and other partners in a bid to replant trees to revitalize Afghanistan's orchards, nurseries, woodlots, and greenbelts. The people-to-people tree-planting program, dubbed the New York Partnership for a Green Afghanistan, is aimed at helping Afghanistan regain its historic position as the "orchard of Central Asia" and support Afghans as they rebuild their orchard, vineyard, and forestry businesses. The project is organized under the auspices of the Global Partnership for Afghanistan, which was established soon after 9/11 by New Yorkers and Afghan Americans in recognition of the tragedies suffered by both nations.
